Hello!We're Team Toba!


JDC West is the largest student run business competition in Western Canada. This three-day event showcases academic competitions, athletic challenges, a social competition, and a charity initiative. Over 500 students from 12 of Western Canada’s top universities unite annually to compete in this competition that is solely by and for business students. The competition provides students with the opportunity to compete with each other in all facets of business, while developing networking, critical thinking, and leadership skills. Each university sends one team of 46+ representative students to participate respectively in one of 10 Academic Competitions, 1 Parliamentary Debate, 1 Athletic Competition or 1 Social Competition. Points are awarded and accumulated towards a team being declared “School of the Year”.

Team Toba is proud to represent the University of Manitoba’s I.H. Asper School of Business at JDC West. Established in 2005, Team Toba has competed in JDC West since its inaugural year.

At Team Toba, our vision is to build an inclusive and supportive atmosphere focused on personal and team growth with the goal of bringing home the title of school of the year.
